“I aspire to support founders in their pursuit of challenging the status quo.” 

Rohil is a Senior Associate and focuses on investing in tech-first businesses across enterprise & consumer sectors. He believes that the technology and startup ecosystem in India is in a unique & exciting phase. “Over the previous decade, internet and mobile penetration has skyrocketed, the tech talent pool has become deeper, and a new breed of entrepreneurs has emerged – fearless and keen to tackle extremely hard problems,” said Rohil. That belief coupled with a passion to contribute to the community is what led him to work with Indian startups. 

Early in his career, Rohil worked at a corporate VC arm and then spent several years at McKinsey as a management consultant. His love for investing, emerging technology and passion for contribution helped lead him to Lightspeed. “Through Lightspeed, I aspire to play my part in partnering with & serving founders who are building products from India, for the world.”
